    A Time And A Place

    • Year Released: 2010
    The A Time And A Place box set brings together a select body of live performances by Emerson, Lake & Palmer captured before worldwide audiences during the band's career and tenure at the sharp end of the Progressive rock genre. It features high-quality soundboard recordings on the first three discs and audience recordings on the fourth. The collection has been praised by fans and in album reviews for the quality of the soundboard recordings, as well as the vast diversity of tracks featured on the discs. This collection is a part of a series of “official” bootleg releases by Shout! Factory and Producer David Skye, with the blessing and participation of artists to provide fans with only the best performances, highest quality recordings, superior packaging and with original cover artwork designed by illustrator William Stout, internationally renowned as one of the first rock “n” roll bootleg cover artists. Other releases in the series include Iggy Pop’s Roadkill Rising and Todd Rundgren’s For Lack Of Honest Work. There were a lot of symphonic rock patrons who tended to dismiss Emerson, Lake & Palmer as after-the-fact wanna be’s, the prog-lodytes of the genre. King Crimson, Yes, and

    Black Moon

    • Year Released: 1992
    Black Moon is a studio album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer released in 1992. It was the first studio album by the band since 1978. The album was received partially well, but it was not a hit such as earlier works like Tarkus and Brain Salad Surgery. Part of this came because Greg Lake's voice had changed since the last time the famous trio played together in the late 1970s. His voice has a distinctive lower tone to it, and is partly disconcerting at first, however, you will get used to this. "Affairs of the Heart" originated in summer 1988 sessions by Lake with Geoff Downes under the project name Ride the Tiger. Album - Billboard (North America)

    Brain Salad Surgery

    • Year Released: 1973
    Brain Salad Surgery is the fourth studio album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1973 and the first under their Manticore Records imprint. It fuses rock and classical themes. Greg Lake wrote the lyrics for the album with the assistance (on two tracks, "Karn Evil 9: 3rd Impression" and "Benny the Bouncer") of former King Crimson bandmate (and, beginning with this album, frequent ELP collaborator) Peter Sinfield. This was the first Emerson, Lake & Palmer album to have no songwriting contributions from Carl Palmer. The cover art is by H. R. Giger. After the release of Trilogy, the band was determined to record an album that they could perform live; Trilogy was recorded on the newer 24-track machines with overdubbing that made the music difficult to recreate on stage. The band purchased a cinema and would perform the music "live" on stage, then write, perform again, write, etc, resulting in a feeling of addressing the audience directly. "Jerusalem" is an adaptation of Hubert Parry's hymn, with lyrics from "And did those feet in ancient time", a poem from the preface to William Blake's poem "Milton". Debuting on this track is the Moog Apollo, the first

    Emerson, Lake and Palmer

    • Year Released: 1970
    Emerson, Lake & Palmer is the eponymous debut album of British progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1970. The album was intended not as an effort by a unified band, but as a general collaborative recording session, and as such, some of the tracks are essentially solo pieces. The album peaked at #18 on the Billboard 200. "Lucky Man" reached #48 on the Billboard Hot 100. On the U.K. charts the album peaked at #4. The cover painting is by the British artist Nic Dartnell. It was originally intended for the American group Spirit. The bald-headed man on the left of the cover is Spirit's drummer, Ed Cassidy. The cover depicts a fluttering white bird with a human ear in the bottom left corner; the bird's left wing outlines the back of the male head to which the ear is attached, the other half of which is on the back of the album, and the right wing outlines a female head. Take a Pebble by Greg Lake is a full band arrangement, with the primary sections being a jazz arrangement by keyboardist Keith Emerson, and the middle section being a folk guitar work by Lake with water-like percussion effects by Carl Palmer, plus a bit of clapping and whistling.

    Emerson, Lake and Palmer in Concert

    • Year Released: 1979
    Emerson, Lake and Palmer In Concert is a live album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP), recorded at the 26 August 1977 show at the Olympic Stadium, Montreal, which is featured on the album cover. It was released by Atlantic Records in November 1979, following ELP's breakup. It was later re-released and repackaged as Works Live in 1993. Similar to most live albums, In Concert showcased fan favourites of previously released material. However, "Peter Gunn", ELP's take on the classic TV theme song, was never released on any of their other albums (a slightly edited version of this live recording was included on the 1980 "Best of" compilation and released as a single in some countries). ELP frequently opened with this song on the Works Volume II tour. The band hired a 70-piece orchestra for some concerts of this tour but eventually had to dismiss the orchestra due to budget constraints that almost bankrupted the group. On the original release, the orchestra performs on "C'est la Vie", "Knife Edge", on Keith Emerson's piano concerto, and on "Pictures at an Exhibition". Works Live adds other four songs performed with the orchestra: "Fanfare for the Common Man", "Abaddon's Bolero", "Closer to

    In the Hot Seat

    • Year Released: 1994
    In The Hot Seat is a studio album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer released in 1994. Keith Emerson had nerve problems in his right hand, which made it almost impossible to play the keyboards. The tensions between him and Greg Lake surfaced again during this album. "Daddy" was written in memory of Sara Anne Wood and used to raise awareness of missing children. The album was recorded at Goodnight LA Studios in Los Angeles, California and engineered by Brian Foraker & Keith Olson. It is the last studio album to date by the trio.

    King Biscuit Flower Hour: Greatest Hits Live

    • Year Released: 1997
    King Biscuit Flower Hour: Greatest Hits Live is a compilation live album by the progressive rock supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It features tracks from two different tours: The 1973-1974 Brain Salad Surgery Tour, and the 1977 Works Tour. Almost all the material included here had been released before on other live albums: The five songs from the Brain Salad Surgery tour (Tracks 11-15) were originally included on the 1974 triple Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends, and four songs from the Works tour ("Peter Gunn Theme", "Tiger in a Spotlight", "C'Est la Vie" and "The Enemy God") had appeared in 1979 as part of In Concert. In Concert was re-released in 1993 as a two-disc set under the title Works Live, adding seven new tracks. Two of those seven ("Maple Leaf Rag" and "Watching Over You") have been included here too. That makes eleven tracks. The remaining four tracks are available legally for the first time: A piano adaptation of the first movement of Keith Emerson's Piano Concerto No. 1 (mislabled as "Piano Improvisation"), a short Carl Palmer solo, and performances of "Fanfare for the Common Man" and "Pirates". The version of "Fanfare" included here is a

    Live at the Mar Y Sol Festival '72 is a live album by British progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 2011. Previously available only on the 5CD + 1DVD box-set From the Beginning, this album was re-mastered from the original multitrack tapes. Although the CD booklet states that this performance took place in "Vega Baja, San Juan", this is a production error. The festival took place in Vega Baja which is not part of San Juan (capital of Puerto Rico). There are four towns between Vega Baja and San Juan.

    Live in Poland

    • Year Released: 1997
    Live in Poland is a live album by the progressive rock group Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It features a performance in Katowice, Poland, during June 1997. The performance was originally released exclusively in Poland in 1997, with a different cover, by Polish music company Metal Mind Productions (the tracklist was the same as on the Austrian release, with piano solo as a separate track; "Karn Evil: 1st Impression Part 2" was entitled "Welcome Back"). It would be released internationally for the first time at Austria in 2001, and for the rest of the world during April 2003. The setlist features all-time classics of the band (The classic concert opening from "Karn Evil 9", "Knife Edge", "Take a Pebble", "Lucky Man", and "Tarkus", the last one presented here in a medley with two sections from the Pictures at an Exhibition suite.), uncommon performances (A remake of the ELPowell classic "Touch and Go", and "Bitches Crystal") and solos by all the three members of the band (Emerson on track 6, on an 8-minute performance on Grand Piano, Lake on "From the Beginning" and "Lucky Man", and Palmer on a section of "Blue Rondo a la Turk").

    Love Beach

    • Year Released: 1978
    Love Beach is a studio album by English progressive rock group Emerson, Lake & Palmer released in 1978. It was the band's final album of original material until Black Moon (1992) and was produced to satisfy contractual obligations with the group's record company. It was a critical and commercial disappointment, charting at #55 on the Billboard 200, although it did eventually go gold. The group was reportedly not satisfied with the album; drummer Carl Palmer even compared the cover photograph to the works of disco stars the Bee Gees. Original pressings of Love Beach carried no producer's credit, but production and mixing of the album were largely carried out by Keith Emerson following contentious recording sessions in the Bahamas. According to Emerson, "everybody but me wanted to get the hell out of Nassau ... in the end I stuck the whole album together ... and sent it off to Atlantic". Critical appraisal of the album is mixed; some reviewers consider it the nadir of ELP's 1970s output, while others refer to the continued popularity of some songs. Writing in Rolling Stone magazine at the time of the album's release, reviewer Michael Bloom said that "Love Beach isn't simply bad, it's

    Pictures at an Exhibition

    • Year Released: 1971
    Pictures at an Exhibition is an album by British progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1971 as a live album and re-released in 2001 as a remastered edition including both live and studio versions of Modest Mussorgsky's classical piece Pictures at an Exhibition. The original live album was recorded at Newcastle City Hall in North East England. The opening track of the album was played on a Harrison & Harrison pipe organ which was installed in the City Hall in 1928. The organ console is some way above stage level, at the top of a stepped terrace used for choral performances. The drum roll connecting the opening track to the next served to cover Emerson's dash back down to the stage. There was also a video made of a different live performance (Lyceum Theatre, 9 December 1970). This had a limited theatrical release in 1973, and a remastered DVD release with Dolby surround sound in 2000. Being a live album, sometimes Keith Emerson's voltage-controlled Moog oscillators went out of tune, due to humidity and temperature. The original album cover, commissioned to William Neal who designed and painted every canvas, used a gatefold sleeve, depicting on the outside blank

    Tarkus

    • Year Released: 1971
    Tarkus is the second album by the British progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1971. In 1993, the album was digitally remastered by Joseph M. Palmaccio. The remastered version was released by Victory Records in the United Kingdom and Rhino Records in the United States. The "Tarkus" suite forms the whole of side one of the album. Greg Lake stated in an early interview that he viewed Tarkus as a representation of the military-industrial complex, and that his lyrics were about that, and about the futility of war and strife. On the album cover, commissioned to the graphic designer and painter William Neal, and made after the music was recorded, Tarkus is depicted as a half armadillo/half tank creature, born from an egg erupted from a volcano. The inner gatefold sleeve features a sequence of pictures depicting battles between Tarkus and other half-mechanical creatures, until its eventual defeat by a manticore - the only creature in the tale that is wholly organic. Tarkus is then shown, defeated but still living, and weeping a tear of blood as he floats down a river in "Aquatarkus". The band later named its own record company Manticore Records.

    The Return of the Manticore

    • Year Released: 1993
    The Return of the Manticore is a 4-disc retrospective on the band Emerson, Lake & Palmer's career. It was released in 1993 and features several new recordings of previously released songs, most notably a studio recording of "Pictures at an Exhibition," presented in Dolby Surround Sound. Also, a live recording of Dave Brubeck's Rondo features on disc 2; the track, although performed by ELP in concert from the band's inception (as it had been by Keith Emerson's previous band The Nice), was previously unreleased on any live or studio album by ELP. The box set is a fairly comprehensive cross-section of the band's history, offering tracks from all of ELP's studio and live albums (at the time of release), as well as new ELP renditions of hits previously recorded by bands they were members of prior to forming ELP.

    Trilogy

    • Year Released: 1972
    Trilogy is the third studio album by the English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1972. The front cover depicts Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, while the interior of the original gatefold sleeve features a photomontage showing multiple images of the band in Epping Forest carpeted with Autumn leaves. Trilogy increased ELP's worldwide popularity, and included "Hoedown", an arrangement of the Aaron Copland composition, which was one of their most popular songs when performing live. The Quadraphonic mix of this album was available only on the Quadraphonic 8-track tape cartridge format. Lake has said this is his favourite ELP record. "The Endless Enigma" consists of three parts: Endless Enigma Part One, Fugue and Endless Enigma Part Two. Endless Enigma Part One has a quiet intro lasting 1 minute and 36 seconds. This intro section consists of the Moog, bass drum and piano. The song Endless Enigma Part One opens with the sound of a beating heart, an effect created by the Ludwig Speed King bass drum pedal of Palmer's Ludwig Octaplus kit. Palmer used the effect before it was used on Jethro Tull's A Passion Play, Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, and Queen's Queen

    Welcome Back, My Friends, to the Show That Never Ends... Ladies and Gentlemen

    • Year Released: 1974
    Welcome Back, My Friends, to the Show That Never Ends... Ladies and Gentlemen, Emerson, Lake & Palmer is a 1974 live album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It was originally packaged as a three-disk vinyl set in a gatefold ("trifold" with two sections opening away from the center) cover, the inside of which used the letters "E", "L" and "P" as retainers for the individual disks. The album reached #4 on the Billboard album chart, making it ELP's highest charting album in the US. This was the last ELP release for almost three years while the band took an extended break to recover and pursue some solo projects that eventually ended up on their next release Works in 1977. The album was recorded during the 1973/1974 Someone Get Me a Ladder world tour. The title of the album comes from the introduction to the performance, itself a paraphrase of the opening line of the song "Karn Evil 9: First Impression, Part 2". Greg Lake took the line from the Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando, Florida, which had it posted above their main entrance. The "welcome back my friends" hook was also used by Alan Freeman on some of his radio shows. The Quadraphonic mix of the album was only released in

    Works Volume 1

    • Year Released: 1977
    Works Volume 1 is a 1977 album by progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer. It is a double album (2 LP's, later on 2CD's) divided into four major sections, one each highlighting each band member, and one for combined works. The album was highly anticipated, as it had been almost three-and-a-half years since the release of ELP's last studio album, Brain Salad Surgery. However, it was different from the synthesizer-driven music that most fans had expected and received a mixed reaction from fans and press. Side 1 is the Keith Emerson side, a concerto for piano and orchestra. Side 2 is the Greg Lake side, and consists of acoustic ballads, most of which were written by Lake and Peter Sinfield. Side 3, the Carl Palmer side, includes a remake of "Tank" (from ELP's eponymous first album), with orchestral accompaniment and without the drum solo. Another track on Palmer's side is the rocker "L.A. Nights", featuring Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh on lead and slide guitar and scat vocal. Also, two arrangements of outside composers' pieces figure on the Palmer side: one of Johann Sebastian Bach's baroque D Minor Invention #4, BWV 775, and a piece titled 'The Enemy God Dances With the Black

Unlike Works Volume 1 (which consisted of three solo sides and one ensemble side), Volume 2 was a single album which seemingly was a compilation of leftover tracks from other album sessions that had not made those albums. While many derided the album for its apparent lack of focus, others felt it showed a different side of the band, with blues, bluegrass and jazz being very prominent as musical genres in this recording. "When The Apple Blossoms Bloom...", "Tiger in a Spotlight" and "Brain Salad Surgery" had been recorded at the 1973 sessions for the album Brain Salad Surgery but did not appear on it. Volume 2 also included a stripped-down version of Greg Lake's "I Believe in Father Christmas". An orchestral version of the song had previously been released as a solo Lake single in the UK and became something of an annual Christmas standard there. Robert Christgau gave the album a negative review, summarizing his opinion in a question: "But is it rock and roll?"
